My DeviantArt page has some fun new stuff up, including (but not limited to) an illustration of the classic Mario Brothers as they get ready to stomp some Koopa butt. So please go check it out!
It's also that special time of year when people everywhere start panicking that their Christmas shopping hasn't even been started. If you're one of those people (like me), and need some joy and cheer, or you just want to have some holiday happiness; then get on over to the Muppet Mindset and see the Christmas banner I made for my good friend Ryan. It's everyone's favorite and oldest Muppet dog Rowlf, based on an illustration Jim Henson drew.
Now it's pretty obvious I love the Muppets, but I'm also a huge fan of the 90's television show Mystery Science Theater 3000. I watch it every day on my laptop while I work, so when I heard that Joel Hodgson's latest endeavor, Cinematic Titanic, was doing a live show at the NJPAC in Newark, NJ, I just had to go! So my buddy Tim and I went and laughed like never before as the original cast of MST3k performed in Victoria Theater. J. Elvis Weinstein and TV's Frank Conniff opened up the show with some stand-up. Trace Beaulieu and Mary Jo Pehl read excerpts from Trace's new book: Silly Rhymes for Belligerent Children. And Joel Hodgson did a magic trick and sang the MST3k theme song before the whole cast came on stage and riffed on a simply terrible movie called "The Oozing Skull". That alone would have been a perfect night, but afterward, the group came out to sign autographs and take pictures with their loyal fans! Everyone signed my DVD copy of Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection – The Essentials and I got my picture taken with Frank, Trace, and Joel! It was an awesome time, and if you're even the slightest fan, check out their touring schedule to see when they're performing close to you, or buy their latest DVDs!
